A light-hearted detective series set in the West Country, Shoestring, available on DVD on 17th October 2011 from 2entertain, follows a radio-phone-in detective, Eddie Shoestring, a crime-solving former mental patient with a penchant for wearing pyjama jackets instead of shirts.

Eddie Shoestring is a computer expert who suffers a nervous breakdown. After a period of convalescence, Shoestring decides to try his hand at detective work. His landlady, barrister Erica Bayliss, arranges for him to investigate a potential scandal involving an entertainer who works for the local Radio West.

Upon solving the investigation, Shoestring visits Radio West to brief his client and after having trouble coming up with ideas for new programmes on the show, it's suggested that Shoestring should be hired as the station's "private ear" to present a weekly broadcast entitled 'The Private Ear of Eddie Shoestring' where members of the public are offered his services in order to investigate cases affecting them such as disappearances or the unsolved deaths of loved ones.

First broadcast in 1979, Shoestring became one of the most popular British detective shows of all time, with Trevor Eve playing the dishevelled, private eye-turned-radio show host, Eddie Shoestring.
